Is this year's Daytona 500 on FOX commercial the greatest NASCAR-related TV spot of all time?


This may be the most captivating commercial ever dedicated to NASCAR and the Daytona 500. The 30-second TV spot, set to the tune of Coldplay’s Paradise, sets the tone for everything NASCAR fans love about the Great American Race.

In 30-seconds, the commercial displayed the event’s greatest personalities with Jeff Gordon, Jimmie Johnson, Danica Patrick, Dale Earnhardt Jr. and Tony Stewart all making cameo appearances. Spliced within is the 500’s greatest moments in Dale Earnhardt’s 1998 breakthrough, Michael Waltrip’s first-career win in 2001 and Trevor Bayne’s breakout performance in last year’s race.

If this video doesn’t give you the chills, it’s quite possible that nothing will. The 54th Annual Daytona 500 kicks off on February 26 with the FOX television broadcast starting at 1 p.m. EST.

Paradise indeed.
